Join National Trust Valentines day flower count

Every year in early spring, National Trust gardeners carry out a Valentine’s Day flower count. They count up the number of blooms in gardens we look after in the South West, to give an indicator of what gardens are going to look like throughout the year. It also allows us to compare with previous years and see trends. From this we can build a picture of how spring flowers are affected by climate change.

As well as gardeners counting blooms in the places we care for, we want to know what’s happening near you. We’ve put together a short survey so you can tell us what flowers are blooming in your garden or local park and what your favourite spring flower is. Can you spare a couple of minutes to help build a picture of spring in the South West?
